Sing A U film should be suitable for audiences aged four years and over, although it is impossible to predict what might upset any particular child.

U films should be set within a positive framework and should offer reassuring counterbalances to any violence, threat or horror. If a work is particularly suitable for pre-school children, this will be indicated in the ratings info.

18th September 2019

The darling of British TV makes its debut on the big screen and it was all too much for Pennywise as Downton Abbey leaves the horror film with only a single week at the top.

Downton Abbey

Making the transition from successful TV series to hit movie on the big screen the famous house from the 1920's aristocracy makes its debut at the top of the UK box office.

The films debut was maybe a little quieter than expected but it still manages a very reasonable £5.1 Million openeing.

This is in keeping woth similar films of this genre but if you compare it to It Chapter Two, a typical overhyped hollywood movie which it knocks off this week, it is a couple of million lower.

IT Chapter Two

It may be a temporary removal from the top but the Stephen King adaptation falls to number 2 this week after a single week at the top with a weekend gross of £3.1 Million.

This pushes the films total UK gross to £13.5 Million after 2 weeks of release which is £8 Million behind the first film.

Hustlers

Hustlers

Also entering the box office this week at number 3, starring Constance Wu and Jennifer Lopez the film makes quite an impressive debut with £1.3 Million.

The film is from director Lorene Scafaria and is based on a viral magazine column from New York about strippers taking their lives into their own hands.

Once Upon A Time ... In Hollywood

By far Tarantino best film to date the 1960 Hollywood set film falls to 4 this week with £557,889 taking its total UK gross to £19.8 Million.

The Lion King

Jon Favreau animated remake (have we stopped calling it live action now?) falls to number 5 this week with £439,795 taking its total to £73.8 Million.

It is the highest total grossing movie on the chart this week and is the second highest grossing film of the year.

Toy Story 4

Pixars animated sequel is at number 9 and has the longerst run on the chart with 13 weeks and its total gross is sitting at £64.9 Million.

16th September 2019

There were a number of new films hitting the global box office this weekend, many of them from China, but none were big enough to stop IT Chapter Two from getting a second weekend at the top.

IT Chapter Two

Remaining at the top for a second weekend is the Stephen King novel adaptation sequel which this weeks takes a bit drop from its debut sut still manages $87.7 Million from 79 countries.

This means that the Andy Muschietti directed sequel has now taken $323.3 Million globally after 2 weeks of release.

Hustlers

Hustlers

Coming in at the highest new film of the week is the American movie starring Constance Wu and Jennifer Lopez which takes $37.7 Million on its debut weekend.

The film is only released in 16 countries so not a bad effort for a film with little advertising spend from the studio.

Detective Conan: The Fist Of Blue Sapphire

Also making its debut on the global box office this weekend is the 23rd film in the Detective Conan animated movies.

The Fist Of Blue Sapphire is making its global box office debut this week at 3 although the film has been out for some time, this week is takes $25.4 Million as it expands to 3 countries.

The film has now taken a global total of $114.2 Million.

Bad Guys: Reign Of Chaos

Another new release making its box office debut with a single country release of China, the film makes its debut at number 4 with a take of $19 Million.

The Last Wish

Finally on the top 5 a film making its debut and released in just 2 countries with a weekend box office gross of $18.6 Million.

Again the film has been out some weeks already and has a total global gross of $22.9 Million despite this being its chart debut.

11th September 2019

It Chapter Two brings to and end a quiet couple of weeks at the UK box office as it enters the top of the box office while Polish Political drama Polityka enters inside the top 5.

IT Chapter Two

Its been 2 years since the original IT scared audiences on its debit weekend to the tune of £10 Million, the sequel has not quite reached that mark but the £7.3 Million has given the UK box office a boost.

Whereas the first film relied on its young cast and the thought of Pennywise the clown to carry the film this film brings in some big hitting stars like Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy and Bill Hader.

The first film went on to £32 Million in the UK and hung around till the end of October (Halloween), expect this to not quite do as well as its predecessor but hang around until late October.

Once Upon A Time ... In Hollywood

Quentin Tarantino's (who lets face it is the real star of this movie) 9th film falls to number 2 this week and is easily his most successful film to date as this weekend it take £1 Milllion.

This pushes the movies total gross to £18.5 Million after 4 weeks of release.

Angel Has Fallen

The third film in the Fallen series starring Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman falls to number 3 this week with £695,622 taking its total to £5.9 Million.

The Lion King

Highest total grossing film on the box office this week and a £686,991 weekend puts its total at an incredible £73.1 after 8 weeks of release.

Polityka

Entering the box office at number 5 this week is a Polish Political drama starring Iwona Bielska and Marcin Bosak and directed by Patryk Vega.

The film takes a very respectable £517,255 on its debut from a limited run of 236 screens making an average of nearly £2,000 per screen.

Toy Story 4

Pixars mega hit has the longest run on the UK box office this weekend as the film notches up its 12th weekend with a total UK gross of £64.5 Million.

10th September 2019

After a very quiet couple of weekends on the US box office a monster of a film gets release this weeks in the shape of IT Chapter Two, but it comes in quite a bit below the original IT from 2 years ago, it still dominates the box office.

IT Chapter Two

Following on 2 years from 2017's IT the follow up takes over at the top of the US box office with ease, but whereas the first film opened to a massive $126 Million Chapter Two comes in at $91 Million.

The fan base is still there, and unlike other sequels this isn't a sequel as much as it completes the Stephen King book which interwinds between the two stories throughout.

With favourable reviews the film should see itself do well over the autumn (fall) and in the build up to Halloween where it is bound to get re-promoted.

Angel Has Fallen

The threequel movie starring Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman falls to number 2 after a couple of weeks at the top with a weekend gross of $6 Million.

THe movie now has a total US gross of $53.4 Million after 3 weeks on the box office.

Good Boys

Falling to number 3 this week is the R rated teen movie which takes $5.3 Million on its 4th weekend for a new total US gross of $66.8 Million.

The Lion King

Disneys remake has been a smash hit for the mouse studio and after 8 weeks the film is still inside the top 5, this week taking $4.1 Million.

THe movies total US gross now sits at an amazing $529.1 Million, it is the 12th highest grossing movie in the US ever and could still enter the top 10 before the end of its run.

Overcomer

The faith based movie fell out of the top 5 last week but bounces back this weekend as the film climbs to number 5 with $3.7 Million takings its total to $24.7 Million on its 3rd week.

Spider-Man: Far From Home

The, maybe last, Spider-Man movie in Disney's MCU has been a mega smash for Sony who own the movie copyright to the character and this week it spends its 10th week on the chart and has a total US gross of $388.1 Million.

6th September 2019

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child was written as a stage show and it was promised it would always stay that way, the book that was released soon after the West End production opened was in play form not novel, but the signage for the play has just recently been changed to reflect that of the movies so does this mean that a movie version is in the works?

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child old and new sign

The original sign was not unique and in many ways reflected that of the original publications in the UK, whereas the logo used on the movies was closer to that of the original US version, and the new logo was presented on Broadway first in a full Time Square takeover and on Back To Hogwarts Day.

Harry Potter And The Sorcerers Stone

The change has had a lot of fans angry about this claiming that the story is seperated from the Harry Potter cannon and this marks that seperation, but why would there be this change?

The obvious conclusion is that there is a movie version on the way, Warner Bros. owns the movie rights to the series and have been a partner to Harry Potter Theatre which produces the stage show.

The rumours have been denied by everyone including J.K. Rowling who posted some cryptic tweets, but are they just not telling the absolute truth because it's not time to announce it yet?

For Warner Brox. who have made Billions of dollars from the series want that money to keep rolling in, The Fantastic Beasts series had a promising start but last year Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald didn't do as well as they would have liked.

The theme park area at Universal Studios are doing well, and are keeping the franchise alive, but there needs to be a new movie for Warner Bros. that fans can sink their teeth into.

Rowling could write a whole new set of Harry Potter centric stories especially for the screen, but she will need to please the fans, and she has always stated after the books she wont revisit Harry Potter and his world again.

She keeps tight control over everything Harry Potter, but she could commission a new writer/screenplay write to come up with some new stories, The Cursed Child was written by Jack Thorne and John Tiffany with Rowling only providing the story, so this is ground she has been down before.

As much as this is something which may be explored in the future, why bother when you have a tried and tested story already there and waiting for a screen version to be produced, its Harry Potter, its already written and it would most likely take over a Billion dollars at the box office.

Harry Potter And The Philosophers Stone

Also it would bring the story to the fans who either dont go to the theatre, it is a niche past time which although having the boy who lived as brought more more bums on seats to theatre in the same way the books got people reading again you are still making inaccessible to some.

I am going to stick my neck out and say there will be a movie version of Harry Potter And The Cursed Child in the long run, there is just too much of a money making opportunity there for Warner Bros., and as the film is already in 2 parts I am sure it can be dragged out to a trilogy, a 3 Billion plus grossing trilogy.
